they think could be repercussions from the international community? >> well, kerry is on his way here. he wants to do two things. one, prop up ukraine by directly expressing support for ukraine. some think this russian intervention adds impetus to is push to a russian-led apec, which comes later in the week. on the other hand, he may want to punish russia with whatever leverage they have. he spent the better part of yesterday on the phone with a whole host of leaders. have a listen. >> it is really 19th century behavior in the 21st century. there is really no way to start with, if russia persists in this, that the g-8 countries are going to assemble in sochi. that's a starter. >> and one thing, he's been talking about the ruble weakening. we're seeing more of that today or the prospect of more of that happening today. so i think kerry thinks, and the u.s. thinks, that some of russia, that asome of the punishment for russia will be self-inflicted. they are also talking about asset freezes, visa bans. the u.s. does $40 billion in trade with russia. kicking russia out of the g-8, or at least

that claim as forces go in crima. they will try to figure out what to do. secretary of state john kerry leaves for the region tonight. >> reporter: bill with all of the militarization here there is concerns about missteps. someone on one side or the other doing something stupid to trigger a conflict. and misspeaking is a problem. there were threats if ukraineans did not surrender they will come in with a storm. this as russia tries to justify their military take over of crima. russian foreign minister said we are talking about the protection of our russian citizenship and the right to live and nothing more. protect from what? people are asking, it is not clear. the ferry terminal was taken over. sparking fears that moscow will use that route to put more troops in the ukraine. russia troops surrounded a marine unit and demanding they hand over stock piles. they have not complied with the russian demands. the russians told them they were there to protect against mauraiders. ukraine called this an act of war. all of the steps taken over the weekend. president obama putin is coping a low p
of his presidency. he's dispatching the secretary of state john kerry to kiev. let's check in with our white house correspondent. >> reporter: secretary kerry is making tough statements. he'll travel to ukraine and meet with new leaders there and offer strong u.s. support. the senior administration officials too have been making these, offering these warnings hammering russian president put decision-making on this saying he miscalculated as well as beefing up warnings that we will isolate with other nations russia internationally. the secretary of state is preparing for an emergency trip to the center of the crisis. it comes after president obama and his national security team worked through the weekend of the dangerous escalating situation in ukraine. the president spoke by phone with leaders of canada, france, germany, poland, the uk after an hour and a half call with vladimir putin himself. senior administration officials say obama flatly rejected putin's reasons for entering ukraine and taking over crimea, telling him to back out. but also offering ways forward through dialogue or

, i think it is easier because the feeling in europe is that it's okay for john kerry to talk tough on the talk shows, over the weekend, no disrespect meant, but russia is closer to us. on the psychological level. it's worth $400 billion a year in trade for the eu. you have the ongoing basis of energy supplies from russia, gas in particular. the germans take a third of their total gas supply from the russians. it's a very much more involved relationship, and it's one i think that the europeans are conscious of not pulling the plug on, unless they really have to. so i think that might account for why it appears, at least, in terms of the pace of this sanctions process, that the europeans are moving in a slightly slower gear. >> simon from brussels with the latest from there, thanks so much. >>> there are conflicting reports whether the u.s. has issued that ultimat ultimatum to surrender. black sea fleet including an attack submarine and three war ships are based at the at the port of sevastopol. wife,000 russian soldiers to be in the city. last weekend president pient sent in 6,000 m
